Jim Schmid’s Trail Quote of the Day #498 – Feb 22, 2017



Rail-trails are a perfect means of telling community stories.… Their long and colorful history make perfect greenways. They combine that history with a respect for the environment, and recreation, and allow us to live life on a human scale maintaining contact with each other and with nature.

—DAVID BURWELL, President, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, 1998
